The curse of the 'Kiricocho' was once again present in a penalty saved by an Argentine goalkeeper. The one who stood out now was Agustín Rossi, goalkeeper of Boca Juniors, who prevented the 'Xeneize' from leaving empty-handed from his visit to Corinthians for the round of 16 of the Copa Libertadores.
From the visiting grandstand of the Neo Química Arena stadium in Sao Paulo, a group of fans of the blue and gold team repeated the cabalistic word to bring bad luck to Róger Guedes, who ended up missing the maximum penalty. Then the Argentine fans began to celebrate as if it was a goal. Everything was recorded and the moment is viral on social networks.
Boca emerged unscathed from the Corinthians cauldron this Tuesday at the start of the 2022 Copa Libertadores round of 16. Rossi saved in the minute 44 shot by Róger Guedes from the twelve steps to the disappointment of almost 45 thousand attendees.
The 'Xeneize' goalkeeper and his colleague Cássio, captain of 'Timão', were fundamental in keeping zero in a very close match between two teams that have won seven Libertadores titles (Boca six, Corinthians uno).
The second leg of this duel will take place at the Bombonera next Tuesday and the winner will face the winner of the key between Flamengo and Colombian Tolima.
